I agree with m00se, and I am pretty confident it is the only possible combination. I appologize for being late, but it was not the type of problem that goes well with the beach!
Congrats to m00se  I imagine you won ChickDances mobile number, the one you already have...
The position of 0 and 5 is quite obvious, also that the second, fourth, sixth and eigth position will share 2, 4, 6, and 8, leaving 1, 3, 7 and 9 to the remaining positions... but my way to the solution was still quite long (finding the about 25 combinations that work for the first five positions, and then the about 11 combinations for positions six to eight that can be divided by eight, and then combining the two sets and checking which can be divided by 6 and 7, too. Dividing by 9 and 10 will work anyway).
Can you post or PM a summary of your way, m00se, I am curious if there is a shorter way than mine... thanks!
